    Garden Valley Adult Foster Home is located in a quiet rural area surrounded by grass fields and a dairy farm. "Home" is the key word because this is a residential home, not a larger facility. We only have 5 residents at a time, and the owner lives in the home too. It is a very peaceful and quiet setting. The house is surrounded by beautiful gardens and has a pool. We serve great home-cooked meals. Everyone eats together and shares the same living area. The local pastor and his wife stop by to visit occasionally. Family and friends are encouraged to visit as often as they desire. We have 3 private rooms and 1 double room. The staff is experienced in a large variety of illnesses and conditions, including Alzheimer's Disease, diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, strokes, and dementia. It is our goal to keep our residents here until end of life and have had many residents on hospice. We work together with home health providers, physical therapists, and hospice to ensure our residents receive the best care possible. When weather permits, we take drives and outings to places such as the coast, state parks, or just shopping.
    All genders welcome
